New Technical Tour Announced For The National Conference

The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) building is a $AUD1.1 billion purpose-built facility opening in July 2016. It is Australia’s first facility conceived and designed to save lives by connecting the world’s best in cancer research, education, treatment and care. The centre is part of the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct. It hosts cancer research, treatment, education and care.

The 13 storey building was completed in June 2016. It is two kilometers from Melbourne’s city centre and facilities include:  

  • 160 overnight inpatient cancer beds 

  • 110 same-day beds 

  • access to a 42-bed capacity intensive care unit 

  • a dedicated clinical trials unit
